Learn to make healthy snacks

Most everyone likes to snack. The best snacks are easy to make, taste great and fill you up without weighing you down. But sometimes we snack on cookies, cakes and chips and while those are OK in moderation, there are some better options that are just as tasty.

All are invited to learn to create healthy snacks varying from veggies to sweets at a fun and interactive cooking session that will be presented by Currituck’s Center for North Carolina Cooperative Extension on April 24 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The class fee is $10 and class size is limited. Registration and payment of the class fee are required by April 16. Registration is available online at go.ncsu.edu/whatscookingsignup or by contacting Currituck’s Extension Center at 252-232-2261. Payment may be made in person or by sending a check payable to “Currituck County” to Currituck Extension Center, 120 Community Way, Barco, NC 27917. Include the class name on the memo line.

For more information contact family and consumer sciences program assistant Sheila Gregory at the Extension Center or by email at sheila_gregory@ncsu.edu. To arrange accommodations for persons with disabilities contact Gregory at least five business days prior to the class.
